Why Study Abroad?
The quality of education is always the primary reason to study abroad. There is no denial in the fact that there are a lot of premier universities in our country, But, the fact is they are pale when compared to the universities abroad. The international universities have amazing resources which make there education so renowned such as their research facilities, industry connections which make their programs tailor made and the kind of funding that is provided. Its prestigious to study from a well-recognised university as it brightens your future and opens your career path. It also gives you an opportunity to discover new places and meet new people and explore new traditions and different cultures. When you start living in some other place you miss your home country that makes it more special as its culture and its people. The other reason for studying abroad is you learn a different language which acts as a confidence booster and its gives me an opportunity to explore the new job market where the opportunities are more rewarding both in terms a career and the kind of salary package that is being offered. Later when you want to return to your home country still you will be carrying a very impressive resume which is valued by the local employers as you bring something new and unique on the table. So being an international student certainly meets their requirements. It also gives an opportunity to make new friends from different countries as they have their own sets of unique backgrounds. Living alone also gives you a sense of responsibility as you have no family to prepare your meals, no one to bail you out at the time of need. It gives you an opportunity to stand on your own. Studying abroad opens the door of opportunities apart from education if you want to settle down in another county. It gives you a sense of open mindedness and also makes you learn that don’t take simple things for granted.
Comparison to Studying in India
The reason why Indian students prefer to study abroad vary person to person. The student has his own preferences. Some students choose to study abroad to get easy work depending upon the countries policies. Some students choose a different country to study based on the relatively smooth admission criteria. One must determine certain factors while deciding to study abroad. The education system in India is more theoretical when compared to the education system abroad as its more practical oriented and makes you job ready. The option to change subjects is restricted in India. In the middle of your program you cannot change your majors whereas in the European or the US colleges one has the option to change subjects and does not restrict them to hold on to one subject only. Flexibility in the education system in Indian education system looks futuristic whereas abroad you have several courses to opt from options of dual majors, minors and free electives to choose from. While in India you do not get a global outlook as you meet students from different states whereas while studying abroad you are exposed to a different lifestyle, culture as you meet students from different countries. You tend to transform into an independent individual as it gives you a sense of community living and to learn about their culture and lifestyle. This is where the friendship connections are formed which lasts for life. The education in India is more theoretical based on the past research while Universities abroad are way advanced in terms of research facilities and funding.
